Korg is a name that has been associated with the absolute cutting edge of technology from day one. Designing all of their gear with an intense spirit of innovation while maintaining high levels of quality has always been the Korg way, and this uncompromising approach has kept them among the elite names in the music industry for decades.
Founded in the early 1960s by Tsutomu Katoh and Tadashi Osanai, Korg rose out of humble beginnings in Japan with the goal of creating a rhythm machine that would revolutionize the way we make music. Their efforts were met with resounding success and the rest, as they say, is history. Over the years Korg has continued to innovate and expand their business, and today offer an incredible assortment of gear for players from all walks of life.
These days, Korg's most popular instrument is their MicroKORG Synthesizer/Vocoder. This instrument is capable of analog modeling and multiband vocoding, while still being compact and portable. Maybe the best part of the MicroKORG is that, despite its robust set of features, it doesn't have a complex menu structure. With all of its parameters located on its panel, it offers easy access and even easier function. Perfect for any performer on stage as well as in the studio, the MicroKORG is, simply put, a must have.
Korg are also very well known for their tuners, especially the Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner. This tuner offers serious precision when tuning so you'll always sound great. Because you can plug directly into this tuner, it won't be influenced by outside sounds, so you can tune up at the loudest of gigs with ease. Plus, it features an easy to read face that lights up so you can read it on even the darkest of stages. Convenient and powerful, a pedal like this should be in any musician's gig bag.
Korg design their gear for everyone, from the hobbyist jamming in the basement to the pro stepping onto the grandest stage of them all. Versatile and easy-to-use, a Korg is definitely a wise choice for any musician.
